on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
president biden. they tend to dampen more in the eastern part of the state. it is in the recent trial were the political strength has been. host: you mention the president has not been in north carolina recently. are people taking notice of that? guest: yes. except for the convention, the president has not really campaign in north carolina since april. we have not really seen the principles year at all. governor romney was here a few weeks back and made an appearance in ashville. that was mainly to have a visit which is very important signal to send to religious conservatives that it was ok for them to go for a mormon. aside from that, mitt romney has not been there. vice-president joe biden has been here several times. this has been a battleground state, but not in the top bobrun state. clearly we have not seen the major candidates here. we have seen a lot of campaigning. we have seen something like $80 million spent here in campaign ads. we have seen as much advertising here as much as a other battleground states. not as much as zero i a, but as much as any other state. -- not as much as
vice president joe biden and governor romney have canceled events scheduled in virginia beach. >>> we have live coverage across the east coast for you. the weather channel's julie martin is live in north carolina. nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams are in delaware. we begin with nbc meteorologist dylan dryer. dylan, we had this new advisory released just about an hour ago. what's the news in it? >> the news is there haven't been too many changes. it is still a hurricane one category at this time. but we are just noticing the track budges ever so slightly with the newer updates. now instead of a direct hit right near atlantic city, new jersey, instead now it is down into delaware. look at the watches and warnings all across the eastern seaboard. obviously most out over the water but included in that northeastern south carolina, the east coast of north carolina, and eventually those will be extended up into virginia and new jersey as well. so winds are at 75 miles per hour, but notice the path of the storm still moving north-northeast at now 9 miles per hour. it sti

back to the white house and deal with the storm. that left vice president joe biden and former president bill clinton to go to ohio. >> youngstown, ohio. >> bill: of course, youngstown ohio. the vice president saying hey he's sorry he's not here but he's on it. >> he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but you know, he's doing the job the president should be doing. [ cheering ] >> bill: absolutely. and former president bill clinton said i told barack you go back and get to work. >> goat up this morning and called me. he said i gotta go back. this storm is getting out of hand. i said mr. president, that is the right call. [ cheering ] >> bill: that's just what i would have done. all right. in new jersey, which was really hammered by hurricane sandy congressman frank pallone will join us here at the top of the hour. david shuster is in new york. current tv's david shuster will give us the report from lower manhattan. judd legum from think progress will be along as well to talk
and the senate would elect biden as the vice president. as we go forward next week and i know the electoral votes may wind up determining the election. could you guys put something together and kind of explain that? i never thought that was a possibility. and i get my news from you guys because everything else is so twisted i don't care what station your on. and the only other thing i'd like to make a comment on is republicans are not racist, people are racist. when you didn't call that lady out, so please when somebody races a stupid comment like that you guys need to step in and say knock that off. host: that's rich in virginia and we'll talk with our producers about doing a segment so everybody has an understanding about what is going on. back to calls for the chair of the republican party in mecklenburg north carolina. betty is on our line for democrats calling from mississippi. caller: good morning. i want to know yesterday i watched romney's speech in iowa, his economic speech and one of the things that caught my attention was he started complaining about obama and his standing on the stimu
things to watch tonight and through the weekend, first lady, michelle obama, joe biden, also big ohio presence this weekend. president clinton on the democratic side doing a lot of campaigning. and tonight in ohio near cincinnati, romney, ryan, their families, and all their major surrogates, minus chris christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wro
affected the race for the white house. governor mitt romney and vice president joe biden each cancled planned weekend appearances in virginia. ron is traveling with mitt romney. >> reporter: all eyes on sandy, including these two presidential campaigns. over the next ten days, expect to see the president and governor romney hit these battleground states hard, including ohio, perhaps the most critical of them all. it could ultimately decide who wins this race. yesterday, governor romney held two events in the buckeye state, including a rousing rally with paul ryan last night in north canton, ohio. the campaign says about 8,000 people showed up for that event, braving some pretty brisk temperatures outside last night. now, he still has some work to do here. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50 to 46, four points. that's about half of what the lead was just a few weeks ago. governor romney has chipped into that lead, but he still has some ways to go. for the president, he just wrapped up a 5,000-plus-mile barn storming tour. he took the day off the trail, spent a lot of time doing
comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut taxes, you have to come in with good policies which governor romney understand as a business person and und
and demonized almost any group that opposed him. >> both governor romney and vice president biden canceled planned trips tomorrow to virginia as hurricane sandy starts to close in there. the governor rescheduling his visit to virginia will campaign instead in the must-win state of ohio. if the buckeye state is governor romney's must-win, same can be said for president obama in pennsylvania where the latest "philadelphia inquirer" poll has the president up by a sizable margin. governor romney has narrowed the lead to six points there. 49-43 in pennsylvania. mitt romney's running mate is on the about us hoeding across ohio. congressman paul ryan on a two-day eight-stop trip through the critical battleground state calling on voters to support the republican ticket. nbc news correspondent ron mott on the bus with the vp nominee. i understand you just arrived in circleville, ohio? >> reporter: we are behind schedule by about 40 minutes, i would say. paul ryan just finished up a quick brief address with supporters outside lindsey's bakery. i'm told it's world famous. they've got pumpkin donuts t
minutes ago, so this is his tenth time on the ground here. vice president biden is expected to be here on monday for an event. that storm willing, i should say, and this is an important state, fred, because new hampshire is a place where voters can register to vote on election day. yes, this state was very big for mitt romney in the republican primaries, but the obama campaign feels that they have a really strong get out the vote effort when you look at the campaign offices, they have 24 to the romney campaign's nine. so as president obama makes his way here and we're expecting this event at elm street elementary school to get under way with president obama speaking at 2:15 eastern time, that's the scheduled time, he will have just this one event here in new hampshire today, but he will be doing a number of interviews. one national television interview, but also a few radio interviews, one for a station in florida, talking to a station in ohio, and he'll also be talking to a station in new hampshire that broadcasts to other stations all over this important state, fred. >> all right. ta
... >> but, he has voted -- mr. ryan's voting record -- >> mr. ryan... joe biden didn't agree, with a lot of barack obama's positions but you listen to the guy in the top job. >> look, look at his positions now. i guess that is news. >> chris: no, actually, it has been for some period of time. let's move on to libya and the continuing controversy on the attack in the consulate in benghazi that killed four people, four americans and we learned friday, cia operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup, and were refused and that they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they worked, over to the consulate to help out there, and were refused. and, this week, the father of one of the navy s.e.a.l.s, the father of slain a former navy s.e.a.l., let's look at what he said. >> he violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people and he risked his life to be a hero and i wish the leadership in the white house had the same moral courage that my son displayed. >> chris: senator, you are on the senate armed services committee, also on the senate intellig
place as well that we'll see vice president biden visiting on monday as well. >> so it also seemed as though the president spent a lot less time talking about romney, and spent a lot more time talking about his accomplishments including ending the war in iraq and going after osama bin laden, and spelling out his plan for the next four years. where is his next stop and is this kind of the new speech that is being unfurled here by the president to spend more time on how he sees the next four years and to remind people of what he has done in the last four? >> you know, he did talk about those things, and i also noticed, fred, that he was talking to women as well. something that we have noticed before, but he spent a considerable amount of time knocking mitt romney and his record as the governor of massachusetts, trying to frame him as someone who raised taxes or fees on the middle class while giving tax cuts to the welty. that's something that was actually new during this speech and really the one thing that really was new that we heard here today in new hampshire. president obama, th
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michigan, min
states today, nevada, and colorado as well before heading to ohio tonight. vice president joe biden is in iowa. first lady michelle obama is in florida. meanwhile governor romney is in virginia. his running mate congressman paul ryan is making the round in colorado and nevada. his wife, ann romney is campaigning in ohio and his son tag romney is in pennsylvania. fox news has a brand-new national poll that shows the obama biden ticket tied with the romney ryan ticket at 46% among likely voters. the latest "real clear politics" national polling average also shows a tie 47.4 each. let's go to the man with his crystal ball, larry sabato director for the center of politics at the university of virginia. larry graze into that crystal ball and tell us who wins. >> yeah, the popular vote is very, very close, and the election stoerl college vote i theee electoral college vote will not be a landslide for either of the candidates. we are working on the final projection. obama is closer to 270 than governor romney, but there are a lot of these swing states, the very same ones we've been watchin
else. he was -- biden actually said we weren't aware of the earlier request for security enhancement. in any administration i worked for it would be all hands on deck if you were fk told that american facility. >> all hands on deck. let's focus on 5:00 p.m. on september 11th. the president is meeting with the vice president and the secretary of defense leon panetta. what would that does it end or does the president need to make a decision at some point about whether to commit or not commit. stew let these folks live or die. >> he has to give a signal to do whatever he can to protect them. i'm not going to guess small tactical decisions where we don't know what the facts were. if the president is saying i don't want to intervene or we have to get libyans explanations which there are other explanations that have been out there, that was a signal that was subordinates not to go in. >> we were reporting that we learned one drone overhead providing high definition video. now we know there were two drones. they had a live feed of what was unfolding at the white house. was it possible the w
that one. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and the vice president biden, that should be a lot of fun. check in next week. [applause] i would have to see three is ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. [laughter] that's extremely one sided in every definition of the term because you would not hear whoopi beeping out every response like they did last time ann was on "the view" which is unfair. the entertainment factor aside, ann is one word, "courageous," truly courageous, willing to use her amazing wit to highlight important issues of our day and describe herself as a to lem cyst who stirs the pot. her background prepared her well. she's a lawyer. she graduated from honors from cornell, graduate of university michigan law school, a columnist, author of eight "new york times" best sellers, confirming the ladies of "the view" are the only ones who have not read the books, they can't comment on them. "mugged," that book is insightful and i encourage everybody to read it. permly, after reading it, i felt so unburdened and liberated i'm going to go ahead and get r
'll return to the campaign trail tomorrow, actually. in the meantime, vice president biden stands in for the president at an event in ocala, florida, this afternoon, and you'll see his remarks starting at 3 p.m. eastern on c-span. we do have more road to the white house coverage in ohio this afternoon. north rob portman and john kasich will be holding a rally there. mitt romney will also speak to supporters in jacksonville, florida. he'll be joined by former governor jeb bush at metropolitan park. also congressman and u.s. senate candidate connie mack will be there. you can watch that live at 8 p.m. eastern also on c-span. >> you know, indiana's made incredible progress in the last eight years. we've honestly balanced budgets during all those years. we've become the fiscal envy of the country, and now we have the largest budget surplus that we've had in our history. it's going to make it possible for us to strengthen our budget reserves, and i believe we can cut taxes for every hoosier. but, john, you just said that we pay for things in indiana, okay? but when you were speaker of
or a year later when they come out and their stories are moving. i get a lot, vice president joe biden's daughter works for the state and has created a remarkable program. it's a partnership between the habitat for humanity, the building trade unions, the face based community, taking kids and teaching them construction skills and when you meet these kids out stores, they are growing. certainly we've always got work to do and every time a kid goes into one of those facilities we've got to work even harder. speeded there are children in these programs successful and we need to continue to fund them, there are children that are not successful bidder graduating and going on and we need to identify that those children are early and make sure that we take corrective action to aid its carrots and sticks it's not all carrots. >> moderator: i apologize to the correctional facility some old habits die. gentlemen, that is all we have for the questions and answers. it is now time for your closing statements. you are the first, jeff cragg. cragg: i want to thank the audience and the two of you for
